Author: J.L. Mac
Tour hosted by: Shh Mom's Reading
For the first time in her life, 25-year-old Josephine Geroux has a future worth looking forward to. She has her beloved bookstore, she has all the comforts that money can buy, she has found the love of her life, and most importantly, she has found hope where there was none for 16 long years.
After the tragic deaths of her parents and her troubled life as an orphan, she met Damon Cole, a man who has everything to do with it all. He’s part of the reason for her wrecked life, but he’s also the reason that her heart has been restored. He’s her future and the exact reason that she’s so willing to fight the demons from his past that threaten the very future that she so desperately seeks.
In the final book of the Wrecked series, Jo is confronted with a turbulent history that has her negotiating the twists and turns that end up being far more difficult to handle than she ever could have anticipated. Jo’s relationship with enigmatic Damon is delicate at best, especially after she inadvertently discovers details about his life that may have been better left buried.
Since Damon’s dark past has remained hidden for so long, Jo’s investigation puts her dangerously close to jeopardizing her already fragile relationship with the man she loves.
Jo has a promising future at her fingertips; she must decide if revealing the truth to Damon is a gamble she’s willing to take. With so much at stake, acceptance proves to be Jo’s greatest battle to date.
ExcerptHis fingers curl around the nape of my neck as the other hand cups my jaw. I’m pulled closer to him, our faces only millimeters apart. His heavy eyes slide shut. It’s clear that my Big Man is doing what he does so frequently. He’s savoring this. He’s savoring me. He’s taking his sweet time because more often than not, that’s just how he prefers it. My lips are achingly close to his. As many times as I’ve felt the fullness of his mouth covering mine, it never gets old. I edge my head forward, hoping that my wanton lips can coax his perfect mouth into giving me what I long for. The grip he has on the nape of my neck tightens fractionally, keeping me in place. It keeps me deprived of what I want and only works to cultivate my appetite for all of him. Just as he wants me. Damon is a calculated man. He has a purpose and a plan for everything he does. Even in the bedroom. His hand on my neck is a subtle way to control and direct me. I happily accept his control over my body.
I don’t know where to begin with this one. When I finished Restore Me, I remember feeling wrecked and emotionally drained. Damon and Jo had been through so much. I wondered if their love was strong enough to make it through. I couldn’t wait to start up my Kindle and read this one. I knew that it was the end of Jo and Damon’s story and I was hoping that finally they would get the ending that I felt they deserved.
Do not go into this thinking that it’s going to be all hearts and flowers and sweet Damon all the way through. I am warning you of this. I was strangling my Kindle and on the edge of my seat reading this book. And, there was some big ugly crying going on. This book completely tore me up, in the best way. The anticipation of what was to come and the turns the plot took were what made this a 5 Star read for me.
Damon is back to his old self, but still a caveman in the way that he will protect Jo, even if it means hurting her.
Jo, she was strong and very feisty in this book. Even when life was kicking her down, she fought to stay up.
I think that J.L. Mac did Jo and Damon justice in this story. I do not spoil books in my reviews but I will tell you this. I loved, loved, loved this book. I read it straight through and could not put it down until I read those two dreaded words, “The End”. ~Jen
